    I love this book. I could have chosen several selections to post, like where he gets saved or leads Friday to Christ, but was really impressed by this section where he learns to be content based on a promise from the word of God.

    After several readings I am not so sure that Crusoe is really all about a man stranded on an island.

    I have never read that classic work, but I think I may find the time to do so. Thanks Roger.

    Anyone who wants to read make sure you get the unabridged version. Penguin Classics does an excedllent edition.

    This is only a sample of the spiritual references in the book.

    It was the first work of fiction I ever read that went against the pop "Follow-your-dreams" theme. This guy followed his "fancy" rather than his reason and it got him in a world of hurt.

    Awesome book.

    You can't really understand Robinson Crusoe unless you are a Christian.I have read it before and after and I tell you it is two different books.

    Robinson Crusoe was one of my earliest loves. Book number two was Scottish Chiefs by Jane Porter. For those who saw and loved Baveheart the script could have been taken from Scottish Chiefs. The difference, Porter filled her historic novel about William the Conquerer with scripture after scripture. Third was Pilgrims Progress by Bunyan.
